Like every year since the beginning of WGM’s existence, it’s time again for our new contest of Vampire Royalty 2023, which this time is an ANNIVERSARY one! We have been together for 10 years now and we are happy and grateful for your wonderful feedback and your outstanding support over the years! It was a really long journey and we didn’t expect to achieve so much, to meet such amazing fine artists, illustrators, musicians, jewelry & fashion designers of such high level and mostly quality FRIENDS! Priceless moments and friendships that we will always cherish!

Together we went through so many emotions, collective successes, we made each other smile! You have filled our hearts with more meaning for what we love to do, which is to create together, to develop something valuable for goth culture and society, and most importantly, to have fun collectively and build a quality environment for goth existing.

You can’t imagine how grateful we are for your faith in us and the incredible support from some of our biggest fans. Thank you!

The new edition of Vampire Royalty Contest 2023 begins in the last days of 2023 due to urgent events that happened lately in our team.

But that’s not all! Still we were able to manage some of the prizes which will have big packages of goods, so join the Competition now – grab your cameras and start taking your best shots!

ONLY ONE will get to the first place! Who will be the most rated contestant – male or female, from which country on the planet? That depends on you and your audience that will support you in this “battle”! So it is time to tell your friends and fans about this Contest and let the game start now!
